There are rumours that it's going away entirely, and that online play is going to be free (rumours spurred by Microsoft no longer selling 12 month subscriptions directly, and the new Halo's online play being reported to be free)
Would put a lot more pressure on Sony if they did away with the Gold requirement. Used to have Gold back in the 360 days, but with PS+ and Switch don't want to pay for another sub.

I'd imagine when they say "holiday" it's likely November, right? I'll likely buy this sooner rather than later, in hopes that it switches over by the time the Series S/X are out...

Yes, holiday season is November. Officially, it's US Thanksgiving but for gaming, it's a couple weeks before to prepare for Black Friday

Good question. Maybe MS will allow you to redeem EA Play for UGP at a 3:1 ratio over time or the EA Play card will just expire. Don't know for now.

The question remains, what happens to those EA Play subscriptions? Because MajorNelson called out "Users who have both Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and EA Play purchased through Xbox" for the conversion to happen, but I haven't seen anything for people that buy pre-paid codes.

I'm planning on reviewing for one month soon directly via Microsoft in hopes that it'll prevent any issues.

You'll get 12 months according to the calculation. Was it worth it?

At $30/year for EA Access, that works out to $7.50 a month. Not as good as the Live Gold method but if you're already an Ultimate subscriber, it's a decent cheap extension.

So you think it's worth getting if we're already subscribed to the gold/ultimate deal from a year ago (so our membership's good until end of 2022)?
